On July 31st 2014 in Bonner Springs, Kansas I finally met Damon Fizzy. The one person who truly helped me overcome my anxiety and my grieving with the loss of my papa. He honestly made me feel alive again and reassured me that everything was going to be okay in the end. I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am to have met him. Unfortunately, I was too nervous and scared to tell him that he was a major reason why I came to warped tour and put my anxiety behind me. It was my first year ever going to warped and I previously have been wanting to go in the past but never had the right opportunity to go. I waited in line for 2 hours waiting to meet him and to give him his gifts, which I’m hoping he loved. I put together a small book just for him that I had help from the Fizzy Family members. They wrote me a small meaningful message for him to read, and to just make his day! He absolutely loved the silly glasses I got him (also cyr and bryan) and immediately put them on. I was shaking so bad and was super shy so I didn’t say much, even though there was a lot to tell him. I managed to remember to ask him if he could write down “take control” in his handwriting for me with his name signed next to it so I could get it tattooed on my wrist. That way If I ever have an anxiety attack or a panic attack or if I’m ever down, I will always have that constant reminder to take control of the situation. This was honestly without a doubt, the best day of my life. Thank you for everything Damon, it truly means a lot :).
